Excellent condition. Recent Oyster Palma refit including new sails, canvaswork, rig haul and check. Viewing highly recommended.

Rob Humphreys designed the Oyster 54 to replace the successful Oyster 53, giving his new design a longer waterline, slightly more sail area and a lighter displacement, all of which combine to enhance her sailing performance. Similarly, broader stern sections further improve downwind speed. Testament to the design, Sara Blue V has often competed in the Oyster regattas where she has held her own against the larger yachts and been awarded first, second and third places on numerous occasions.

Sara Blue V is also a proud, second-time winner of the Concours d’Elegance at the recent 2016 Oyster Palma Regatta. She is a stunning looking boat from any angle with her sleek curved deck saloon and modern rollover bulwark.  Sloop rigged with electric in-mast furling and furling headsail, she offers simple push button sailing. Below decks, the increased volume aft of the 54 design is translated into greater accommodation space and a superb owner’s stateroom.  Her ample accommodation plan sleeps six in three cabins with hand finished cherry joinery that adds a touch of luxury.  

Highly specified with around £250,000 worth of optional extras above standard, Sara Blue V is still in her original ownership and has been professionally maintained since her launch in 2010.  Her recent yard period with Oyster Palma added another €30,000 of care to Sara Blue V including a rig haul and check, new standing rigging, new North Sails and new canvas work.

Sara Blue V, is truly a fabulous, family cruising yacht, is transatlantic ready and definitely worth viewing.
